According to Variety, Comcast is planning to air the upcoming Masters tournament in 3D on its own dedicated channel and website, Masters.com. The tournament, which runs from April 8-11, will be available in 3D for two hours per day to those who own 3D-enabled technology.

Meanwhile, 3D coverage will not be available on ESPN or CBS, which has broadcast the Masters since 1956.

Still, ESPN plans to show the World Cup and NBA games in 3D on a brand-new network, beginning in June. Discovery, Imax and Sony have plans to jointly create a 3-D entertainment channel next year.Tiger Woods MastersIs 3D the new fore?

Much like on the big screen, 3D entertainment is looking to become the biggest invention television has seen since the color TV. At the Consumer Electronics Show in January, Toshiba, Samsung, Sony, Panasonic and LG all announced new televisions equipped with 3D capabilities, and last Wednesday, Panasonic put its first set on sale. For just $2,900, you can get a 50-inch plasma screen, one pair of 3D glasses and a 3D Blu-ray player.

Samsung also began selling 3D sets this week, while LG and Sony plan to put theirs on the market in May and summer, respectively.

Golf ratings have plunged significantly this year since Tiger Woods has been out of the competition, due to his ongoing sex scandal. Woods, who became the youngest person ever to win the tournament, in 1997, has won the Masters four times. According to reports released today, he'll make his highly anticipated return in time for the tournament.
